Uncertain Terms [version 2]

time stands still
now I need you
to turn back the hands
the hands on the clock
one more time

we’ve got no time to kill
I want to be with you
I want to be there
when you call
out in the dark
lost in the gray
how can I see you this way

uncertain terms

and when you’ve lost
your way with words
you think I don’t listen
you think I don’t hear
but I do
you just repeat yourself
you want to be with me
you want to be
still you don’t call
out in the dark
lost in the gray
how can I see you this way
how can I hear you
I cannot be near you today

uncertain terms
